Number of undocumented children continues to grow

FORT SILL, Okla._Another change has been made in the number of undocumented children now living on Fort Sill.

The number now up to 390 from Monday's reported 255 children. The DHHS said despite the arrival of the children, Fort Sill had not received any threats regarding their stay. On Monday, Lawton police confirmed that DHHS did reach out to the department and two other agencies to help with security. But despite that request and a visibly high security fence surrounding the children's living quarters, DHHS says there have not been any criminal incidents or a security threats.

The Fort Sill shelter is supposed to be temporary and is capable of holding over 1,000 undocumented children at a time.
